Coming to Illinois I knew would be an adventure. My mom came with me and the boys on the plane and Kai was so excited he couldn't sit still! (Okay he is just 2 and was tired and acting up but I would like to think it was excitement instead). We are renting a 5 bedroom home in Creve Coeur, about 15 minutes from the church. We are only here for 6 months and then we hope to buy something so my mom and I put everything downstairs we won't need right now and we are using the upstairs as living space.
The day after my mom left there was a big snow storm and due to the wind and the -30 temperature we lost power about 10 times. Everyone says if you don't like the weather in Illinois just wait 10 minutes. I've seen this prove to be true and so the adventure begins.
